I thought this post should be about “The Girl’s” Radio…
Here it is, My Radio… “My” is a little misleading. Here I have to give credit where credit is due… My Radio is actually my Ex’s Radio. He built it from a kit and it’s been a great little performer for him and now for me! What is it? It’s an Elecraft K3!
The Kit for the K3 was originally for a QRP radio with 10 watt output, but then he added a 100 watt amp. Next install was the automatic antenna tuner. Plus now the radio has 5 Roofing Filters, which are used for selective receiving. And just for fun we have a Short Wave Filter for SWL! There’s more on the wish list, but for now this is a great little set up. Great reception, and I’ve gotten compliments for the great audio too!
So there you have it! The Girl has a Elecraft K3! And I’m loving it! Being on the air is so much fun! Tell me though… what’s your rig? This blog is going to be about my adventures in Amateur Radio, but I’d love it if you’d leave a comment or two to let me know your adventures… or at least your thoughts about Amateur Radio!
